The Iliad - What is it Really About?

As you may have gathered, I am a great fan of Lindybeige. He is an atheist, so I tend to avoid any video that might possibly be religious in content, sticking to his historical and archæological videos.

I had thought that this would be simply one of those. However, in the discussion, he makes a sympathetic reference to Christianity, after, of course, making it clear that he is not a Christian.

It's a fascinating video for any fan of Homer. The end card, referencing the Odyssey, is hilarious, as well!

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
